In House Beauty Treatment

Aug 4, 2008
Instead of wasting your time and money in a beauty saloon you can do the same treatments at home yourself with less than one-fourth the amount of money you spend in a saloon.

Facial

Facial is a sort of guardian angel which in a short time rejuvenates the skin. Tie up your hair. Then clean your face with good cleansing milk. Wipe off with a piece of cotton wool dipped in water. Release impurities by steaming. Steaming is done by putting your face over a basin full of hot water, with a towel over your head to keep the steam in as long as possible. Steam for 5 minutes only. Hold your face 25 cms above the water otherwise you will have broken veins. For dry skin steam for 5 minutes and if you have oily skin then steam for 10 minutes. The heat dilates the pores and empties them of dirt and cleanses the skin of all its impurities. Thoroughly wipe a damp napkin and pat dry. Now apply a facial scrub. Use gentle circular movements and avoid the eye areas. After 20 minutes wash off and apply a mask for greasy skin. Gently apply eye cream. After 20 minutes wash off and apply a alcohol free toner. While the skin is still damp apply a moisturizer.

Warning- Do not gives yourself a facial if you have acne or other skin conditions. You might make the condition worse.

Perfect eyebrows

Only one professional brow-shaping done in a saloon can help you maintain perfect eyebrows all your life. Every day see your eyebrows in a mirror kept near open window where you get plenty of light. If you see any stray hair just pluck them out with a tweezer. If you find that tweezing is painful then take the sting out of the operation by dabbing the eyebrows with a piece of cotton wool dipped either in eau-de-cologne or astringent lotion. All the stray hair from above the nose should be plucked out regularly by using a pair of scissors. This should be done daily without fail to keep your eyebrows permanently in shape.

Waxing

To prepare your own wax at home, take 250 grams of sugar and squeeze in juice of 6 large limes. Cook the mixture over gentle fire till it turns light brown and sticky. Remove from fire and mix in 1 tablespoon glycerine. Apply the wax in the direction of the hair growth with the help of a blunt knife. Press a clean strip of cotton cloth over the wax. Grip the edge of the strip firmly. Pull off in one swift motion against the skin in the opposite direction making the removal of hair easier. Before starting waxing on any area, dust the area with talcum powder to ensure that the wax pulls off cleanly. After waxing, moisturize the skin with a moisturizing lotion or cream.

Manicure

Your nails deserve a weekly manicure to keep them in a good condition. Remove old nail polish a day in advance to give them a chance to breathe in oxygen and to get the benefits of sun and air. Before beginning your manicure, wash your hands thoroughly with hot soapy water using a soft shaving brush. Apply cuticle remover over cuticles with a cotton bud. Cuticle remover softens and loosens cuticles. Never cut cuticles and do not push them back too hard as you might hurt live tissues at the nail base. Wash fingertips again, work off dead skin with a napkin and then dry hands thoroughly. Massage a little warm olive oil around the nails and then wipe thoroughly so that no trace of grease remains. Cut nails and shape them using a nail file. Use long movements in one direction. Gently level the tips with downward strokes so as to seal together the nail layers. Now scrub nails downwards with a nail brush dipped in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly. Place your hands firmly on a table and apply a thin even layer of nail polish. Stroke brush down the middle, base to tips and then do the sides, Stop and dry and apply a second thin coat and wait till it dries up. Finally apply a thin top coat and leave to dry. Reapply every few days sealing the edges to make your manicure last longer. Keep nail polish in the fridge to prevent it from thickening. Do not shake the nail polish bottle if you want to use it (it creates air bubbles). Roll between your palms instead.

Pedicure

Don't ever have long toe nails... It's just not done. Keep nails up to the edge of the toe. Cut straight across to prevent ingrown toe nails. File the nails carefully and remove old nail polish. Push back cuticles with cotton buds. Soak the feet in warm soapy water and scrub with a foot brush to remove dead cells. Dry well and nip off any ugly nails or bits of dead skin with scissors. Before applying nail polish, place small swabs of cotton between each toe. Paint the nails using a thin coat first and then follow up with 2 more coats of nail polish.
